Fashion Week Favourites: Valentino's Tribal Couture


Well, sadly, Fashion Month is over! Paris Fashion Week was the last piece of runway loveliness for us to lust over this season, and boy, was it a good one.

So the next in my Fashion Week Favourites is from the French capital itself, and it's the fashion legend that is Valentino.

Valentino, lead by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, is always a beautiful show to watch, but this season it just seemed to push the wow factor up a notch. Valentino is always reliable for classically stunning gowns and eveningwear, but this collection was more diverse and definitely more wearable. There was a varied mix of inspiration on display, from tribal embellishment to schoolgirl headbands and masculine shirts. I love the details here; the necklaces wrapped round to create chokers, the basic white shirt turned into a cape, demure shapes combined with autumnal lace and sheer mesh.... it's all very, very good. 

My favourite collection of the season? I think so.

Valentino, be my valentine? ♥♥♥
